On July 1, Kathleen Schlegel will join the faculty of the Br. Robert Middle School Division at Saint John’s teaching spanish language to our incoming seventh graders. 

Ms. Schlegel is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish with a concentration in Latin American and Latino Studies. During her time at Holy Cross, she participated in a Study Abroad program for one year at La Universidad de Leon in Spain.

Upon reflecting on her new position at Saint John’s, Ms. Schlegel shares, “I am so excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the beginning of the new Brother Robert Treanor Middle School Division at Saint John’s High School. I look forward to sharing my passion for the Spanish language and culture with the students as well as working to assist them in their growth as members of the school community. I am honored to be joining a school that is values-driven and that provides opportunities for physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.”
